This review is from: Much Ado About Nothing [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a really thoughtful, well acted, and amusing take on the great play (far, far better than the Branagh version for example). The modern setting is not a distraction but adds weight to the story - the 'constables' as modern day security agents, the warriors are from the world of finance or business not literally army men, the ways of the modern wealthy middle class fit the story perfectly. Benedict is not the brightest person in the group and rather slow but that works well with the script, and Beatrice is a wonderfully feisty counterpart.
